This is a great way to pay tributes to Bapu. Come, be a part of this movement and strengthen the efforts to create a Swachh Bharat!” tweeted Modi.

Sadhguru said, “Swachh Bharat is not a movement of any Government or any Prime Minister. This is a nation’s movement.”

PM Modi said, “I’d like to extend my regards to ITBP personnel. You’re always there in the hour of need whether it be on borders or during a calamity. You’ve made the country by being a part of this mission: PM Modi during interaction with ITBP personnel at launch of ‘Swachhata Hi Seva Movement’.”

Sadhguru said, “Level of enthusiasm towards Swachhata campaign is visible and I see this in my travels. The necessary impetus in this direction was needed. Tremendous things have happened (on cleanliness) thanks to our Prime Minister. It is great that the Prime Minister is talking regularly about things like cleanliness.”

Ratan Tata said, “The Tata Trusts are actively supporting the Swachh Bharat Mission and our support will continue in the years to come especially in bringing more technology in ensuring a clean India. I congratulate you for a courageous move in the form of Swachh Bharat Mission. We are no longer taking the health of our people for granted. We are devoting manpower for a strong India and focussing on healthcare. The health of our people cannot be there without sanitation and cleanliness. We can reduce and eliminate several diseases if we support the Swachh Bharat Movement.”

Ratan Tata says, “It’s a great honour and privilege to help launch a movement which should be the dream of every citizen of India. To be a strong India, the foundation has to be strong and that foundation is the health of our people.”

Amitabh Bachchan said, “I found television to be an effective way to spread the message of cleanliness. I realised that what people should do is focus on ensuring their immediate surroundings are clean. We were involved with a Cleanathon. CM of Maharashtra and I went to hospitals with the message of Swachhata. I will continue working for a Swachh Bharat.”

PM Modi said, “I firmly believe that the private sectors have a big role to play in creating a Clean India. Together, we shall achieve the Swachh Bharat of Bapu’s dreams. I appeal to the cooperative sector to continue their efforts in furthering cleanliness.”

PM Modi said, “It’s not that the construction of toilets will only make India clean. Toilets, garbage dumping etc are only the mediums of cleanliness. Cleanliness is a habit which needs to be imbibed. This a change which people of India are contributing into.” 

PM Modi says, “Nobody had imagined that in four years, 9 crores of toilets would be constructed, and almost 4.5 lakhs of villages will come in the category of Open Defecation Free (ODF). Have you ever imagined that more than 450 Zilas and over 20 states will get freed from open defecation? This is the strength of India and the Indians.”
